Toby here, PM at tickr! We’re not really sure exactly when we might roll this functionality out, but it’s a common question we get.
I think there’s a couple reasons we get this question;
- People feel that if they can invest in more things, they are more diversified. This might be true, but by investing in any of the tickr themes, you gain exposure to around 500 global companies. That would generally be considered good diversification! I don’t think there would necessarily be any great benefit in having 4 different portfolios within tickr
- People just want to have more control over what they invest in. We totally get this one. For example I might want to invest in Clean Energy, but not in Ageing Population. It would be quite cool to create a fully custom portfolio and adjust the ratios of each sub-theme.
You might want to be able to have both an ISA and a GIA in tickr if you were in the fortunate position of having filled up your £20,000 ISA Tax allowance for the year.
In summary, we’re still trying to understand why people want these things - it’s still in discovery . It’s very commonly requested though so I would expect us to address it at some point this year.
Hope this answers your question!
